The shortest path from A to B is a straight line, but is it the best road? After 13 years as an expat, I’m back in Melbourne, Australia, with time to look at where I’ve been, where I’m going and why the heck I haven’t published that novel yet. The protagonist in my work in progress is an expat blogger, so I figured I better get some firsthand experience with my own blog. When the time is right, I look forward to introducing you to Tara Scott.
